The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. My GPS was playing up this morning, I kept getting a weak signal warning, not a wisp cloud or leaf in the way?? Anyone else having problems, I know it's not my unit (Garmin Forerunner 301) because it was back on form this afternoon, when there was cloud. Good job I don't have to rely on it!!
     
  2. A good map and compass is all you need :wink:

    I was a surveyor and proved how sh*t gps could be :lol:
     
  3. Vermin,

    From the NAVCEN:

    You can actually help these chaps out be sharing your woes on 703-313-5900.
     
  4. I know, it's a gimmick, it tells me how far and fast(slow) I run, for that use it's a great motivator but for navigation it's sh1te because it doesn't tell you were you are!!!
